If you've missed me!

Hello all!!

Wow has life been moving and grooving!

If you have wondered what happened to me.....I started a new blog a while back over at:
Change is My Only Constant

As you can tell by the name, it was time to start fresh.  New blog, new career, new life.  My things changed in the last year, and the blog is just merely one of them.  Please do take a chance to head over and check out my new digs!

Thank you all of you wonderful people in Blogland!

My Oh My!

It's been such a long while since I've been in blogland, and I've started looking back at some of my favorite blogs from way back when...

And I realized - I wish I could just sit and sew all day long!!

There are so many stinkin' cute projects out there, and I have a bit of a stash built up, but not enough time to stitch it all up.  :o(

It's crazy how much inspiration is out there on some of these blogs, like....

There were so many more absolutely adorable and inspiring things out there...let me tell you!

I guess that means I just need to get kicking with my last few weeks left before school starts, and it shall start....Monday!  I so wish I could get crackin' tomorrow, but work must come first, don't we all know it.

I shall have some more fun things done soon to show and share, 'til then....

Hugs & Giggles!

And I'm back!

Hello, hello all my happy, beautiful blogland friends!

I have been feeling the jump to come back and do a bit of posting, so here I am!  Life has been a bit crazy, and so many changes in live have occurred - so it was probably I took a little break on here to get things all figured out and situated.

I have a new home, a new man, a new career, and much new-found happiness!  It was all a much needed change, and life is....well very different, and so much more fulfilling than I ever imagined it could be.

You've maybe also noticed a bit of a change around here, I decided things here needed a little freshening up along with everything else.

So life....still in school, still working (wait, that's new too!), still sewing and quilting away!  Mom and the girls and I still get together once a week for dinner and sewing, which is absolutely wonderful!  And I swear, has been my saving grace through this all.  Maybe more about that later....

Many awesome projects as of late!  I don't have pics on this computer, but will be working to get some up soon!

Thank you all for stopping by!

Time to take a break...

Well, Blogland friends, I am taking a break from the blogging world.  School has taken over my life and I've come to the conclusion (with some help...) that some things need to be set aside while I work my way through.  Unfortunately, blogging happens to be one of them. :o(

I want to thank you all for stopping by, commenting, and giving me forever inspiration!  I will still be checking out the other blogs that I have often read.  I'm not sure when I'll be back, we'll just have to see where life takes me.  I have a feeling there may be a post or two while I'm on winter break between semesters, but not going to make any promises.

"I see my path, but I don't know where it leads.  Not knowing where I'm going is what inspires me to travel it."
-- Rosalia de Castro --

Until next time, my dear friends!

A little privacy please

This morning, mom came over to do a little baking with me and work on curtains for our front door. We made some delicious Rotha's Buns family recipe, and Chocolate Zucchini Cake {which I will share the recipe over on my other blog later this week}.  While the buns were rising and the cake was cooking, we were working on the curtains for the front door at my and hubby's house.  We didn't have to do much, just make a pocket at the bottom for a second rod to fit.  Quick & easy, just the way I like it!

Anywho, the door is almost half window and our house is on a main road, so anyone driving by or out walking their dog could easily look into the house and up the stairs.  I found the curtains at a church garage sale almost two years ago, but we all know how life goes...  So we finally got it all figured out and finished today!  Awesome!  It looks beautiful!  Just like it was always meant to look like that!  Yay!

We also spent some time brainstorming for a blogger name for her.  She's always reading blogs, and has wanted to leave comments but doesn't have an account.  And I wouldn't be surprised if blog posts come out of it all some day either!  So stay tuned...

A day behind.

Alright, I was all ready to post last night....then I went to Hulu, and found a TV show I just had to watch, apparently I procrastinate a bit....who woulda thought!  So anyways, here we go!

Another great night sewing with the ladies!  We were all doing a bit of our own thing.  One was finishing her Stop Sign, two were cutting for the quilt along over at Fat Quarterly, and I was onto my sewing blocks together for the quilt along.

We all picked our own folder or the quilt along instructions, all fun colors!  When Dani was asked which color she wanted, she chose yellow.  Her reason?  "It's yellow like a sunshine, and I'm bright like a sunshine!"  Yes my dear, you have a very bright and smiley personality, the color fits!

After picking our folders and reading thru this week's instructions, off we went.  I was all cut, so I decided to go ahead and start my sewing!

As I'm sewing them thing I hear from Mom: "Are you following the directions?  Or are you just going?"

Directions?  Here's how my life goes:

I live my life outside of the box.  I'm not really an "inside-the-box" person, I often am thinking {and doing} "out-of-the-box".  I'm usually a "wing-it" girl, not really always a direction girl.  Mom, on the other hand, is a follow-the-directions type of person, do it how they show it.  I like to take risks, do things different!  I don't always do it the "right" or "as told" way.

But hey, I'd say the ones that I finished turned out pretty well, wouldn't you say?!?

This is just a portion of my fabrics, I still have many others that I was working on before I left!

Another little tidbit from last night that we all must remember:
  1. Marinate it.
  2. Boil.
  3. Cool it off so it doesn't spoil.
  4. Wrap it up in some tin foil.
  5. Put it in the freezer; keep it there forever.
What are we baking?  Nothing.  This just has to do with...
  • Success
  • Feelings, the fact that we're all beautiful!
  • Fabric scraps
  • make it, you bake it!
Oh such fun we have on Tuesday nights!

Oh yeah, and one last thing...we were all working away, and what comes around the little corner that makes mom scream?!  A MOUSE!  Yep, mom and dad have always had mouse traps set in the basement, mind you, it is livable.  But the weather is getting cooler, and winter is a'comin' so those little critters are working their way in.  Dani saw it before Mom, but didn't say anything, haha!  She thought it was cute!  Then mom saw it (my back was to it), and there weren't any words that came from her, just wide eyes, pointing, and noise.  Then I turned, saw it, and walked "leisurely" to the other side of the room.  Keep in mind, I've never really liked these little critters...I used to live in the basement...

So all in all, it was quite a night!  As Tuesday nights usually are.  And now I'm off to class!

Inspiration, Inspiration Everywhere!

I went downtown to meet with a friend for lunch earlier this week, and I saw quilt inspiration everywhere I looked.  Here are a few of my favorite ones!


What has inspired you today??
